Fortnight for Freedom

Freedom and service took on a new dimension for some Catholics on July 4.

You’ve seen them: weathered faces lined with care, holding their cardboard signs by the side of the road, begging for help. You’re waiting for the light to turn green and try to avoid their stare. What to do?

Terry Chavez opens the door for a delivery, but it’s not the latest gadget from Amazon she’s expecting. Instead, a St. Vincent de Paul volunteer is delivering groceries — groceries with a dose of faith, hope and love, that is.

Dioceses throughout the country will be highlighting the Catholic Church's religious freedom in service to the poor and vulnerable during this year's "Fortnight for Freedom."
